no idea. i have absolutely no idea why. i'm surprised jim lehrer didn't ask about it. i was surprised romney didn't affirmatively try to defuse it himself. i was surprised that obama didn't bring it up. biggest surprise for me of the night is that it didn't come up. it's been the dominant thing in our debate for the last few weeks. >> david axelrod is coming up. jon meacham, you look over the past 25 years, 30 years or so, and you look at the republican presidential candidates who all have strengths, they've all been remarkable men in their own way, but not good debaters. you know, republicans have held our breath through the john mccain debates and the george w. bush debates and the bob dole debates and the george h.w. debates. again, a great man, a horrific debater. you know, the famous jon lovitz line, "i can't believe i'm losing to this guy." playing michael dukakis. you really do have to go back to ronald reagan to find a republican that was in command during a presidential debate. and i predict that's going to excite the republican base in a way it hasn't been excited in a very

of the problem with seats coming loose. abc's jim avila reports. >> reporter: boston's logan field, one of american's boeing 757s, 47 of which nearly the half the fleet taken out of service as the troubled airline tries to make sure no more of its coach seats come loose in flight, as they have three separate times. >> our seats, 14 abc i think are totally disconnected. >> somehow in the installation process of our seats we introduced a failure. not sure mechanical failure or human failure. >> reporter: american saying it identified what caused three flights to be aborted in mid flight because seats came loose. in one case, flipping passengers on their backs. the seats came in rows of three. and the row is held to the floor with what is called a saddle clamp. it is that clamp that was improperly installed on the planes where the seats disengaged. >> on the safety side of this particular situation, american is doing all that it can do to ensure that the seats are -- are being looked at and making sure they're installed as correctly as they're supposed to be. >> reporter: american says the

for him to do a really good job in my opinion. >> i think this debate format was an interesting one. jim lehrer got a lot of heat for it, but to me this was a debate where you got to hear both candidates have more of a conversation and talk back and forth, which as a voter i like seeing something like that. >> i sort of liked the job that jim lehrer, i liked the job he did because he let him go at it a little bit and it showed a lot. if you remember the cnn disaster that they had a while ago and i won't mention who, but somebody kept interrupting, interrupting, you couldn't say a word, it was always interruption, this was almost a better, it was more flowing, and it worked out very well. but the next debate is going to be very tough. i think obama is under a lot of pressure. now as far as jack welch is concerned, you're all sitting around talking about jack welch, a great legend in business, a very smart guy, he's 100% correct, 100% correct. >> wait a second, in terms of the chicago political guys manipulating the numbers? >> how does it go down to 7? there wasn't an economist in the cou

in question who was really going to win the debate and then jim lehrer said let's turn to the second session on the debt. the first thing he said was the issue of the debt and deficit is not just an issue of money it is an issue of morality. immoral to leave the debt to our children and grandchildren and i thought it was a strong statement and elevated the romney campaign above a kind of we can do a little better for your pocketbook next week than president obama can and put it in a bigger concept and elevated the race into who is the more are responsible steward of this country's finances and well being for the next generation. i thought it was a very important moment for mitt romney. >> geraldo: stand but youle join our all-star panel in a moment. first, news on fast and furious, folks. the botched atf gun running operation and news that hasn't been fully digested by the mainstream media. we know that one of the walked guns was used to kill agent brian terry but it took the spanish language news network to reveal that the walked guns were also used if you recall the horrific 2010 massacre

in the carter administration, jim schlesinger, in an open letter to time magazine asked governor dukakis, "are you viscerally anti- military?" jim schlesinger never got an answer. and the reason he did is because the governor of massachusetts doesn't want to answer former secretary jim schlesinger on that very important question. >> tom, a last question for senator quayle. >> senator quayle, all of us in our lifetime encounter an experience that helps shapes our adult philosophy in some form or another. could you describe for this audience tonight what experience you may have had, and how it shaped our political philosophy? >> there are a lot of experiences that i've had that have shaped my adult philosophy, but the one that i keep coming back to time and time again and i talk about it at commencement addresses, i talk about it in the high schools. i talk about it when i visit the job training centers. and it's the advice that my maternal grandmother, martha pulliam, who's 97 years old. we are a modern day, four generation family. the advice that she gave me when i was growing up is advice tha
. >> i'm sorry, jim. i'm going to stop providing to pbs. i like big bird. >> that blew away the democratic convention. bush had nine and a half million messages over three days. and after romney made that one-liner, the phrase big bird got 17,000 times per minute. pbs at 10,000 times per minute. big bird shot up to the fourth most term on google. trading worldwide, new twitter account open, but how insightful was the tweet talking to distract the substance of the debate? i love big bird they stop pbs. the tragedy of mitt romney as he knows people kill everything she loves. the big cnn came up with this, breaking, big bird two campaign, he would put big bird on the chopping block. sesame workshop putting up this statement. in nonpartisan non-prophet organization. we're happy we can all agree that everyone likes big bird. tracy: i love big bird. ashley: time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes, let's go down to the floor the nyse. and nice boost. nicole: from the debate last night we have watched financials and health care, how about coal. they're doing quite well, all this
thought mr. romney was very disingenuous. i watched the debates from top to bottom. jim lehrer asked mr. romney whether he supported the the vouchers that mr. ryan would be introducing to senior citizens. he dodged that question like a football player going through a pittsburgh steelers last night. i am a little cleared out. i would appreciate a lot more honesty on mr. romney's part. i probably will be leading toward the president. i am still winning. host: do you have two minutes? stay on the line. we will get a romney supporter on the line. i want to hear a little back and forth that we will moderate here. caller: sure. thank you. host: what did you think of the debate? caller: i enjoyed it and i thought to mitt romney 1. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would l

"the stack" and and then they interviewed some guy in the crowd and they said his last name's cramer and it was your dad. i mean, you had more plants. >> october 3, 1998, my father was on squawk next to the liberty bell. >> yea. >> this was before you were an icon with "mad money," but y
3rd. jim lehrer firing back at the critics who said he let the debate get out of hand. telling politico, i don't consider that being passive, i consider it being effective. it's not my job to control the conversation. if the candidates give me resistance and i let them talk, to me that's being an active moderator, not passive. meanwhile the internet continues to be abuzz about what exactly mitt romney put on the podium at the debate? was it a cheat sheet of talking points, perhaps? the campaign confirming -- it was a handkerchief to keep the powder dry. that's not stopping conspiracy theorists. they're calling it hanky-gate. president obama with an unbelievable record. >>> and mitt romney debuting the softer side, will it make him more likable to the viewers still on the fence? >> the people of california want me to be their governor. and i will do that and nothing else. >> and a little bit later, he changed california politics in a way no one ever thought he could. we'll flash back to see how the austrian bodybuilder turned governator, how it all happened.
